    All shots were take above f/8, 3 exposures per HDR, ISO 100

    Sky was layered to give an added effect

    Used photomatix to combine them, briefly tone mapped and then used CS3 to get them to my liking.

    VERY NICE pictures! :)

    so can you explain what other settings you have for the 3 exposures per HDR? what f-stop, shutter speed etc?

    thanks

    Thx everyone for your kind words

    I shot in Aperature Priority so you shutter speed is gunna vary depending on the amount of light available. I used a +2/-2 autobracket, shot with my Xt and kit lens at 18mm (except 3 was at 24mm)

    Not gunna list all the exif data, but heres an example using number 1:

    Constant aperture f/8
    1/400
    1/1600
    1/100
    Center-weighted average metering

    A huge part in how your pictures come out will be your ability to post process them well and not get sucked into making a unrealist HDR compostion.

    Good luck shooting

    Some nice shots. I haven't done HDR myself really, but it is my understanding that you want to capture the entire range. It doesn't look like you did that with the one of the fence. Your shadows are too dark. I would try combining more shots with your shadows exposed more and it should look great.

    Having said that it is probably better than I can do. Good shooting.

    thanks man,

    i don't think my d60 has any auto bracket so I assume .. i can trick it by manually adjusting the shutter?

    ^Ya the D60 doesnt have an autobracket feature, but shooting without it isnt that bad, you'll probably learn better without it anyways...
    I think there is a good tutorial on stuckincustoms.com on shooting HDR

    Ya that pic didnt turn out as well I would have hoped...I really needed a slave to light up the fence a bit more. There is also the fringe on the right hand side above the tree line that bothers me.

    Thx...I went through the phase of overdone and tacky HDR, got sick of it quickly
